We are always looking for ways to celebrate fall and one thing that is trending is this twist on candy apples.
It is called a Galaxy Candy Apple.
There are two looks. The red Jolly Ranchers will give it a nice red apple look. Almost like the red slippers in the Wizard of Oz. The blue and purple give the apples that dark galaxy look.
For this you will need:
- Red or Green Apples
- Popsicle or Kabob Sticks
- Parchment Paper
- Jolly Ranchers
- Edible Silver Glitter - Get the large kind not the fine glitter
- Pyrex Bowl you can put in the oven
First, put your selected Jolly Rancher candies in an oven safe bowl. Lay out the parchment paper on a plate or baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the bowl in the oven. Keep an eye on the Jolly Ranchers and stir as they start to melt.
You want to make sure it gets bubbly so you know it's hot.
Take it out of the oven with an oven mitt.
Be careful to not get the melted Jolly Rancher on your hands or it will burn them.
Stir in the glitter and then roll the apple around quickly.
Place it on the parchment paper and sprinkle more glitter on top.
Heat up the bowl again until bubbly before you dip your next apple.
These dry very hard so its a great idea to cut them and share.
